With our wide range of background check solutions, Triton helps retailers and franchisers put the best people in front of customers and behind the scenes.
Why do retailers need to run background checks?
Retail employees are trusted to handle money, manage expensive inventory, and interact with the public. To keep your store operating at the standard of your business and customers, managers must create a work environment that discourages theft, fraud, and violence.
Before hiring a candidate, conducting a pre employment screening can help you understand who you’re putting in charge of your store and in front of your customers.
What types of information should you be validating?
Retailers should be validating:
Because retail employees handle cash and inventory and deal with the public, previous charges involving theft or violence are relevant.
When hiring for your company’s future, you should get an in-depth understanding of a candidate’s past.
Many retail positions require drivers to deliver merchandise, so you need someone responsible behind the wheel.
Education history verifications determine if potential candidates have the knowledge, skill set, and certification required for the job.
Reference check verifications reveal any discrepancies in a candidate’s information, helping you determine if they’re a credible person to add to your team.
Social media background
A social media background check examines a candidate’s online behaviour to identify red flags that you may want to avoid in your team.
Why do retailers use Triton?
A 2021 National Retail Federation survey found that employee theft costs retailers $1,551.66 per case on average, compared to $461.86 per shoplifting case. Moreover, less money is recovered from employee theft than from shoplifting. That means you stand to lose far more money from dishonest employees than shoplifters.
